LEAGUE CUP

League Cup Draw

The draw for the EFL (League Cup) FOURTH ROUND (last 16) has been made and we didn't get an easy game, whereas Chelsea and Arsenal picked up what should be simple opponents.  The ties will be played week beginning 24th October.

Fourth Round Draw
West Ham United vs Chelsea
Manchester United vs Manchester City
Arsenal vs Reading
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur
Bristol City vs Hull City
Leeds United vs Norwich City 
Newcastle United vs Preston North End
Southampton vs Sunderland 

Liverpool vs Tottenham will take place on Tuesday October 25 at 7.45pm UK time and will be shown live on Sky Sports. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp though the draw had a semi-final look about it.

"I was waiting for the draw and then saw West Ham - Chelsea, a little smile to be honest; then Manchester United - City, oh nice, another smile; then a freeze in my face because we got Tottenham! But it’s good. I think it’s a big boost for the competition. 
"When I came here I had to explain why we field strong line-ups and now in the competition it looks like a semi-final each game. 
"It’s a big opportunity for all the teams, they all try to go through and you can see this with the line-ups. That’s pretty exciting. I am happy about playing at home. 
"When we cannot have European nights, let’s take what we can get. It will be fantastic and I am really looking forward to it."
